For just about all the big sporting events nowadays, there is usually some type of wager between government officials. The de facto SEC East championship game Saturday will be no different.
With the Georgia-Florida rivalry renewed in Jacksonville at 3:30 pm ET, the governors from both states, Brian Kemp of Georgia and Ron DeSantis of Florida, will engage in a friendly bet.
If the Bulldogs win, DeSantis will have to track down some feral hogs hurting farmers in South Georgia while if the Gators win, then Kemp will have to hunt pythons causing Florida several problems in the Everglades.
Both governors released the details of the bet on Twitter:
There’s a big game on Saturday & I’m so confident in the #Dawgs that I made a friendly wager with FL @GovRonDeSantis. We win & Ron comes to S. Georgia for feral hog hunting. We lose & I’m hunting pythons in the Everglades. Let’s hunker down & keep choppin’! #GoDawgs! #ATD #gapol https://t.co/QDjq1MSspP pic.twitter.com/UOzVJ48pFa

What a great bet. Not only is this fun, bringing out the best in the Georgia-Florida rivalry, it will result in one of the governors helping the other’s state.
The Bulldogs and Gators will kick off at 3:30 pm ET on CBS.
